Island 6-7-8 June 2003 - The ACSD Pentotary Club of Foggia and
the e-zine Apnea Magazine are organising a world freediving event.
The pricipal event will consist of the Italian National freediving
athletes challenging each other in the first competition of the
CMAS new freediving discipline, known among lovers of freediving
as "JB" or "Apnea Cube". The CMAS competitions
take place in a cube 15x15x15: each diver must reach the base of
the cube, go as far as possible along the sides of the cube base
and then surface. The first world championship of this new discipline
will be celebrated in Tunisia next September. Eight Nimar videocameras
will be positioned to film all the phases of the competition.
Before and after the competition all the freediving lovers will
be able to try this new discipline and take part in a free short
course regarding the use of monofin in freediving. The course will
be held by David Landi, former world champion of finswimming, Armando
Ballotta, former CT of the Italian finswimming national team and
Mario Ciavarella, Professor of acquatic discipline theory at the
University of Foggia. The course, which is open to all, will consist
of a theory lesson during which freediving videos will be shown,
and a session of training in the sea.
